Adding a Photographer Contact Form

Looking for a contact form that can capture more information from prospective clients interested in your photography packages? Check out Wufoo, a free, easy-to-use web app for building and designing forms for your website. With a gallery of pre-made templates you can further customize just for your needs, you can add a new form to your clickbooq website with a few easy steps.

Here’s how. Create a free account on Wufoo, which includes up to 3 forms and up to 100 entries per month. If you need more than that, or want some of the added features that come with paid accounts, you can upgrade to one of their monthly payment options. Once you’ve signed up and logged in, you can start creating your form immediately. In the Wufoo Form Gallery, you can find pre-made templates for a variety of forms, everything from simple Contact Forms to Event Registrations. I started off using the “Retreat Registration” form and then just tweaked the fields to create an inquiry form for a wedding photographer.

You’ll need to spend some time thinking about what information you want to capture from visitors to your photography website. For my form, I included fields for name, email address, phone number, mailing address. And to give me more detail about what they were looking for, I included a drop-down menu to choose which photography package they might be interested in, a calendar for selecting the date of their event, and a fill-in the blank for the location of their event. Plus, so I know what marketing channels are working for me, I included a drop-down menu with options for how they were referred to us. You can make all or some of these fields required.

Once you’ve setup your form fields, you can create a theme that matches the style of your clickbooq website. You can select from different fonts and colors as well as upload custom patterns and logos. When you are done designing your theme, save it and assign it to the form you created.

Now when you View the form from your Forms Manager, you can get a link to the form. It’s easy to link to the form within your clickbooq website, by creating an External Link in the clickbooq Toolbox > Content Page section. When visitors come to your clickbooq site and click on the external link you’ve created, it will launch a second browser window and load your Wufoo form.

Once you’ve posted your form on your website, Wufoo can send you an email or even a text message to your cellphone to let you know when someone submits an inquiry. There are also reports and graphs you can create to track your results as well as download all your new prospects.
